Ethiopia Buliye, Ethiopia

Taste Notes: Blueberry, Lemon Sherbet

End of line sale - roasted on 7th November. 

Our roasters were left momentarily speechless during a cupping of this coffee: “Just, wow!” Thankfully, they recovered their power of speech long enough to tell us about the taste notes: a fruity cup, with notes of lemon, blueberry and physalis – a type of gooseberry with a tangy grape-like flavour.

Please note, when ordering 1kg you will receive four bags of our 250g coffee bags.

Buno Coffee Trading is a relatively small exporter who manage seven washing stations located in the area of Guji in Ethiopia’s southern region. To ensure the coffee cherries are picked at their ripest, farmers are paid a premium for kilos delivered after the harvest.

Team Recommendation

Ashleigh and Jess, resident baristas at Carrington Street, have been drinking this guest coffee for the past 2 weeks and are loving it. Ashleigh prefers lightly roasted coffee, so this hits the spot for her. Jess is a flat white girl and thinks this light fruity coffee is delicious.



High above sea level, in the fertile red volcanic soil of south Ethiopia, coffee producers grow their coffee on the hills and village outskirts under the shade of indigenous trees. Arabica beans originate from Ethiopia, and the coffee trade accounts for over 10% of the country's GDP.
